Fresh ingredients

The food was very fresh and flavorful. For the price ($12 small plate, $32 entree) I expect to be wowed. I was not wowed, but I did enjoy my food. I had the salt cod fritters, green beans with plums and fresh herbs, and tuna with a salsa verde as my main. I think the small plates were the best.... read more

Excellent small restaurant--everything they do shows how much they care about the food--informative servers, friendly upbeat staff, great wine list (that Albarino!)--they make the ingredients shine. Nice experience.

Park Kitchen was the perfect spot for our first dinner during a visit to Portland. Each of the dishes we ordered were delicious. We did a lot of sharing to sample a wider variety of tastes - something that is easy with their small plate offerings. There was clearly an effort to support local farmers and to make sure everything... More

We had the chef's menu priced at $60 each. Each course was beautifully presented by knowledgable serving staff. The food highlighted the very best of local ingredients, including an amazing cold green pea soup with salt cod. The green strawberry salad was also excellent, but our favourite part of the meal was a tie between the pork loin with sausage... More

At this romantic, upscale restaurant in the Pearl District we found wonderful food. It really was farm to table, guided by a very creative chef. My husband had Maupin Farm roast pork and I had Sudan Farm grilled lamb. The vegetables were fresh and the entire meal was excellent. We'll definitely return here when we're next in Portland and have... More

This is a wonderful find in the Pearl District – with a wide menu to appeal to the most creative palate. There are “large” dishes as well as “small”. The large dishes are not over-sized so one can order these without worrying about a platter. The menu is creative and inventive with splashes of Asian influence. I had two small... More

Great meal getting the chef suggestions. Everything well made with great flavor and textures. Personally I wasn't that fond of the anchovies and egg but it was well made. Loved the chickpea fries. Service was great with all of the staff helping and delivering. Great place we will be back.

Park Kitchen serves a tapa style menu with hot and cold small plates and has an outstanding and reasonably priced wine list. We chose Andrew Rich's Tabula Rasa, a Rhone blend and an exceptional value! The service is very friendly and quick - always smiling. The Chickpea fries with roasted Squash ketchup are not to be missed!
